U.S. Grand Prix back at Bachelor

    The top snowboarders in the country will once again showcase their skills in Central Oregon.

    Mount Bachelor was selected Tuesday as the second stop for this season’s U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix, according to the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).

    The Grand Prix is a three-stop pro tour that includes the best riders in halfpipe and slopestyle.

    The event, originally scheduled for Mountain Creek Resort in New Jersey, is slated for Feb. 3-4. The venue was changed because of a lack of snow in the Northeast, according to the USSA.

    This marks the 10th time that a U.S. Snowboarding event has been hosted by Mt. Bachelor. Last January, the top halfpipe snowboarders in the country competed in a Grand Prix at Bachelor as they vied for spots on the U.S. Olympic team.
